, but not much impact on the polls, and then the polls will be influenced by the debate the week following. let me say something about ohio. you put it in an interesting subject there. president obama's campaign said for weeks ohio's comfortably put away, ten points. american cross roads, which i don't head, just a supporter of it, i raise money for it, mu american cross roads' polling before the debate showed the state a two point margin for obama before the debate. if the state is comfortably put away, why is the obama campaign next week increasing its buy in ohio by 50%? you don't add a lot of money, a lot, you know, millions plus on to a state you think you put away. that's is what's happening in ohio next week. president obama's campaign is adding a pretty significant amount to the tv there. lou: how concerned are you about money? by the way, if i misspoke, i apologize, but we got to find out who is running the american crossroads, because i want to talk to them more often. >> his name is steven law. he was the ceo of american crossroads, and a very able guy. lou: i got you. until then, if
it. so the jobs numbers probably helped slow the obama fall but now we move into another week people will be talking about biden, and then a couple of more with romney and obama. >> bill: yeah, i was surprised and impressed, i guess that obama proved -- so he didn't have a good night, we all know that, but i thought he bounced back pretty quickly the next day. he has been having a lot of fun with the big bird line. and it showed a lot of resilience, i thought, and as you point out the job numbers came on friday which gave him another little boost, cutting the impact of any romney bounce. >> yeah he has an incredible amount of fire and energy when it is his back up against the wall. >> bill: yeah. >> it's almost like he puts himself in positions like that so that he can get excited about politics again. he obviously didn't want to be on that stage, wednesday night. you could just tell he was like, god, 90 minutes. i'm just going to stand here for 90 minutes and let this guy say stuff, and then he sees that the entire nation is mocking him, and then he get
's poor performance last week. also, this is a campaign where president obama is running as much against paul ryan's ideas as he is against mitt romney. that elevates ryan as well. >> it seems clear in choosing chris van holland they will go against the first ryan budget, the first medicare plan and also the ryan book. they will go after the budget cuts and troo to tag mitt romney with the severity, using the term relatively, of the ryan budget cuts. >> right. rom uh any down played the ryan road map. keep in mind the first ryan budget plan included privatizing social security, at least to a certain extent. that's something ryan then dropped in his subsequent budgets. it was there and he was one of the advocates of the plan to put it in the market. secondly the medicare issue. those entitlements, we'll ha from biden about thursday. a lot of democrats think he dropped the ball not pushing the issues against mitt romney. joe biden will read ryan's book and go after those entitlements. >> up next, as mitt romney focuses on foreign policy we'll get a reality check on the challenges abroad. [
couple weeks on libya you will see governor romney try to go after president obama on competence, on foreign policy but also on the broader issue of competence and leadership. >> and that brings you to the fourth point which is president obama ready for prime time? he's been president for four years. >> right. >> and he is well known for being able to give the great speech. >> right. >> is he ready for this combat? >> that's right. i mean, governor romney, the 20th in the course of the primary, this is a different level. president obama has nodd not ha one for some time. i think president obama has to be careful month to not come off as too harsh. hillary, you're likable enough, when the president can come off a little bit cold. so i think he's going to have to be careful on that. >> and finally, as we go, who brings up bill clinton first? will we see he's campaigning in new hampshire today so he's being deployed. >> i have no doubt that president obama will be happy to invoke bill clinton's support here. and i wouldn't be surprised if romney mentioned him either in terms of tryi
president obama putting a different foot forward after that debate last week? >> it's no surprise that barack obama raised this much money. we knew they was going to raise this much money all along. in 2004, john kerry out-raised president bush, and we all know how that turned out. so i think, you know, yes, he raised a lot of money. the president, or, excuse me, governor romney has raised $12 million since wednesday. so it's been a shot in the arm for the romney campaign too. >> and that's online as well. >> it's 60% -- >> we're not talking about major donors. we're talking about people who saw his debate and liked what they saw. >> 60% of them are new donors. so i think the romney campaign is very pleased with this. and what you saw tuesday night in the debate, you took the money off the table, you had the president and governor trromney speaking unfiltered to the people, and people really liked what they heard from mitt romney. >> but some people might not consider exactly what mitt romney said as unfiltered. take a listen to what he said about cutting taxes for people during t
to an empty chair. the empty chair represented president obama. this week's cover of "the new yorker" picks up on the performance against mitt romney. why don't you since you work for "the new yorker" ryan, put that cover up again. >> this is barry blitz, one of -- i think one of the most -- a lot of people, one of my favorite cartoonists at the new yorker, famously in 2008 did a cover that was controversial of barack and michele obama in the oval office, remember this -- >> the terrorist misstep. happen to have a piece in that issue, overshaded doed the palestinian issue. but yeah, i think he captured what everyone's reaction to that debate was. >> not the 2% of republicans. >> the 70% of independents that thought romney won -- >> i love the jim lehrer detail on this. >> and your cantonist quoted as saying he never realized how difficult it would be to caricature furniture. he learned a new new lesson. >> interesting to see back to the poll numbers, we heard congressman ryan saying you get the -- no effect at all in that debate. i think -- >> we don't have the data yet. everyone is like -- >>
jokes aside, mitt romney gain soming ground after beating president obama in last week's debate. joining us to talk about the numbers our political editor paul steinhauser. that's pretty stuff. they know how to go there. are we talking about much of a balance here after the debate? >> well, one poll does indicate a small bounce. take a look at this, suzanne. this is from gallop. they do that daily tracking poll. it's a seven-day poll. look what they did. they split it up in two. on the left column, those are the three days prior to last week's debate in denver. you see according to gallop, among registered voters nationwide, the president a five-point advantage. with the sampling area, look at the right. those are october 4th through 6th. the three days after the debate, and gallop indicates it's all tied up there. yeah, i mean, this one poll does indicate that mitt romney did get a bounce. of course, we're going to see a lot more national polls, a lot more polls. most importantly in the battle ground states later today, tomorrow, and wednesday ask thursday. keep your eyes on those state
would have done better against the obama that was debating this week? >> i think so, piers, but, you know, it would sound like i am now trying to rewrite history or i would have done better. you know, i've never tried to do any of that looking back and certainly not in anger or bitterness. but i think it is true that during the 2008 campaign, the president or then-senator obama had no record to defend. and one of the reasons why mitt did so well in this debate was because mitt was, i think, very legitimately attacking his record, whether it be the $90 billion in subsidies for energy or a number of the other things that -- the failure of dodd/frank, and so the president had a record to defend this time. but, one, do not underestimate the president of the united states. he will come back strong. i think mitt has to be prepared for that. and also, as you mentioned, these job numbers will give him a bit of -- or something of a boost today. >> we've got the vp debate coming up. you said about joe biden he's the gift that keeps on giving. are you hoping that he's going to be giving some sp
of an issue in the debate. mitt romney raised it last week and president obama blamed exxon mobil and they fired back at the president when he suggested changing the tax law to affect that company and it will come up in the v.p. debate and more down the stretch especially if prices are around $4 a gallon. >>eric: what do you think of the idea of relaxing the epa standards? the way i understand it, it is the california epa standard and keeping the national epa standard in place with the blending requirement. what do you think of that idea? >>guest: i'm not an energy expert but the politicians always have to be active in this situation you cannot just it is back and all the people in california, they are upset, they want something done. you can just say, we cannot do anything, it is up to the speculators and the markets. you have to try something. even though a last times when you do something, times it doesn't work. you have to be active whether you are a democrat or republican. you have to respond to the concerns. when you are spending this amount of money, $70 or $80 to fill up t
there will be a better prepared president obama on the stage next week. >> when you are not that bright, you can't get better prepared? >> romney rocks the president. >> look, i have been in business 25 years. i have no idea what you are talking about. >> sean: in a "hannity" exclusive, the governor and his runningmate paul ryan are here with their very first post-district attorney bait interview. >> what was he doing tonight? >> sean: the left spirals into full panic mode and liberals search for answers in the wake of the debacle in denver. joe biden admits, he wants to raise your taxes by trillions. >> ooh 'bama and biden want to raise your tax by $5 trillion. guess what? yes, we do. >> sean: and the real obama is exposed as another disturbing tape emerges from his past. we have it tonight. plus, a special edition of media mash. we investigate race and politics. we are 33 days away from election day. "hannity" starts right here, right now. welcome to "hannity." the consensus is in. governor mitt romney was the decisive winner in last night's presidential debate. in just a moment, i will be joined fo
misleading statements. "time" magazine story this week runs down statements by both campaigns that are either false or outright propaganda. so for the democrats to call mitt romney a liar is foolish and destructive to their guy, president obama, because the obama campaign has made just as many false and misleading statements as the romney campaign has. beyond that, there is the usual hysteria from ranked idealogues. racial hustler michael eric dyson has injected color into the debate. explaining why president obama could not speak candidly. >> lest we forget this and pretend that doesn't make a difference the specter hanging over his neck that i can't come off as too vigorous because then it looks like i'm an angry black man and because of the angry black man phenomena barack obama engaged man -- here is the reality, obama doesn't have the latitude that white guys who speak with vigor do. >> bill: here's the reality, mr. dyson, you simply cannot analyze anything, anything without injecting race, that's the reality. now, fair-minded americans know vicious garbage when they see and hear it ther
is talking about president obama's body demeanor this week. what does tanya think. i want to start with the two candidates walking into the debate forum. >> all righty. >> we welcome president obama and governor romney. [cheers and applause] >> bill: okay. so the first thing i noticed was the president grabbing romney's arm. >> right. and talking his wallet. no, he didn't really. but he, you know, getting a little -- kind of semi hug. >> that's not the first thing i notice. the first thing i notice was the swagger that the president came out with. >> bill: he was bopping. >> his arms are swinging high. romney is not. he is very stiff when it comes to walking out an stage. then the hands meet. the patting goes on. the most interesting thing about that is as someone is trying to pat your arm demonstrating is he powerful. president obama comes across as powerful because is he patting. romney had the same amount of power going on. >> bill: do you believe that they actually think about what's going to happen when they walk out and how they are going to shake hands and their posture. do
versus ryan here. a week from tomorrow, obama versus romney. and then those two again, two weeks from today, that's the final debate before the election. so mitt romney to the, he gave this 20-minute speech on foreign policy. not exactly one of romney's stronger suits thus far. take a look at yet another poll here. the question being better on foreign policy shows him trailing the president by seven points on that one specifically. wolf blitzer, let's talk to you about all of this. joining me live from washington here. and we'll listen in a moment to that speech from mitt romney at vmi. let me ask you this, why a foreign policy speech this late in the election campaign? do you think he sees some sort of opening here? >> yes, i think that the killing of the american ambassador and three other americans in benghazi, libya, the consulate there, and the confusion surrounding the administration's explanation for what happened, the condemnation by some has given him a clear opening. take a look at what is happening throughout north africa and the middle east. he said that today. there is a
obama leading 49% to 46% among likely voters. again, within the margin of error and closer than it was two weeks ago. on the direction of the country, 40% say we're heading in the right direction. 53% say things are on the wrong track. 40% is the highest mark for this question in 3 1/2 years. there's also growing optimism about the economy. 57% say it's improving. that's the highest number this poll has recorded on this question. one thing not going the president's way here, his handling of the situations in egypt and libya. more people disapprove than approve on that question. as for mr. romney, it appears he's still paying for the comments about the 47%, 51% of respondents to this nbc poll say recent impressions made by the republican candidate make him less favorable. they view him less favorably. 28% say more favorably. >>> both presidential candidates were off the trail as they prepared for tonight's debate. the president spent the past couple of days working with his team in nevada. took a quick break to visit the hoover dam. why not while you're there. mitt romney was in
well. i think when people talk about last week, expectations for president obama are always exceedingly high and it was relatively easy for mr. romney who had an 11th hour conversion. we recall that he is the etch-a-sketch guy that has transformed himself and quite frankly, we always have to wonder which mitt is going to show up. so if you just lay out lie after lie after lie about your own plan as well as what the president has been talking about, of course, you can look good. vice president biden will do very, very well. he knows what has been going on. he is in touch with the american public, and i'm just hopeful mr. ryan will tell the truth. whether it's about medicare and that it's a voucher program, that mr. romney and mr. ryan, their health care plan will lead to many uninsured and put people back out. if they have preexisting conditions. >> let me just step back just a minute here about your defense of the president's performance. what is your theory? i mean, it was widely panned, and the thing is if he thought as he said the next day that mitt romney isn't telling the truth, th
is townhall and obama really shines in that format. >> stephanie: my favorite post of rude this week is entitled simply "paul ryan is a little bitch." >> isn't that wonderful edsy. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: you wrote paul ryan appeared on fox, quote, unquote, news ryan was there because at in point in the election cycle, romney's job is to be the little bitch. [ applause ] >> stephanie: he's true. he is a little high pitched already, isn't he? >> he is. and that's what is going to be fun. i hope they release the biden on on thursday night. just tell him, you know what joe, just take this punk down. >> stephanie: yeah. >> that would be beautiful. the delicate work that biden did on sarah palin back in 2008 was beautiful. he was like some kind of master with a razor, and so -- but he doesn't -- then there was the fear of saying something that could be interpreted as sexist or something like that. >> stephanie: right. >> now just punch him in the crotch repeatedly. make him pee blood we'll say rear toicly. >> stephanie: rudeness. thank you, honey. we'll see you after th
survey, just out today, among likely voters, romney now leads obama 49-45. three weeks ago, pugh had the president on top 51-43. that's quite a turn around. it's due to the debate where 66% told pugh they say mitt romney won. just 20% believe mr. obama prevailed. rasmussen dale tracking poll today has the race tied among likely voters. 48% each. in iowa and colorado, the president is hanging tough. in iowa, it's obama 49, romney 47. colorado, obama 49, romney 48. both are dead heats within the margin of error. joining us from washington, democratic strategist marge mcclinton in for juan williams and mary katherine ham. the pugh number, 49-45 surprised me, mary katherine. same with you? >> i was a little surprised at how far it moved. i'm not surprised it's moving in mitt romney's favor. i mean, this was 70 million people watching and the guy who showed up, mitt romney showed up to do that job that night was the best he had ever looked and certainly obama, the worst he ever looked on a stage with someone else, i would say when we have seen him in the situations before. people tuned in
weeks. i kind of thing he can. i hear folks on the left and right saying barack obama's got it locked up and i have this rung debate with governor spitzer. i said every time you say president obama has this locked up democrats will stay at home. if you think that you're going to stay home because barack obama has got the whole thing sown up, you are the problem with democracy. you are a barnacle on the dingy of freedom. it's more important than ever to get out and vote. we will be taking your calls all morning long at 866-55-press. we want to know your thoughts on all this stuff. first, i want to talk about what happened last friday on fox news. for those of you who lived in california where i did for about 11 years or so, freeway chases are nothing new on the news. every time someone robs a stuckey's, helicopters follow the vehicle. what happened on friday was rather tragic. fox news was covering this and fox news to be fair, isn't the only cable news channel isn't the only cable channel that drops everything to follow chases. cnn has done it as well. a man named caesar romero was engag
for president obama after this week's tough debate performance. but the honeymoon only lasted five minutes before a tweet by former g.e. ceo jack welch sparked accusations of a conspiracy theory. joining me is former dse communications director and msnbc political analyst and publisher of >> it is a big improvement. is there a down side if the president and his advisers appear too relieved or the fact that it's under 8, that's a win? >> yeah. i think the president and the white house actually did a good job of -- they have all along making the point that let's keep this in context. it's good news because it's moving in the right direction. the other thing about the 7.8 number that i think is the most important is that number and the number of jobs created was in addition to about 418,000 more people actually re-entering the job market. so point being in the past sometimes we've had some good numbers because in part some people weren't looking for work anymore. so i think that's actually -- so there are a number of positives. but i think the president has been very realistic a
obama on stage next week? >> when you're not that bright, you can't get better prepared. >> lazy. not that bright. this is the president of the united states he's talking about. he was pressed about .comment. >> did you really need to call the president of the united states lazy? >> yes. i think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas. he said, you know, they're making me do this work. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> now, we've seen this disrespect right from day one. it cannot be tolerated. mitt romney must denounce a n sununu's ugly talk. joining me now, opinion writer from the "washington post," and victoria defrancesco, a fellow at the university of texas and an msnbc contributor. thanks both of you for being here tonight. jonathan, calling the president lazy. how does governor romney allow this to be said on his behalf? >> he just allows to be said. this isn't the first time governor sununu has said impertinent things about the president. remember a few months back, he said that the president didn't know what
more than barack obama in the last five weeks of the campaign. get over it, yes, you may like barack obama more than me but he hasn't done the job. >> richard says barack obama needs to play it safe. you say, mitt romney, don't play it nice. that's an interesting summation of the debate strategies. i want to talk about vice president biden, a favorite subject for both of you. >> america loves joe biden. >> i love joe biden. he said something on the campaign trail something yesterday and the republicans were quick to pounce. let's listen to what he said. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify, raising attacks on the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts? >> and this is how paul ryan responded. >> i thought he was taking my speech. you know what? we agree. the middle class has been buried over the last four years. they're being buried by obama care, by borrowing, taxes, spending, more regulations, all this uncertainty plaguing businesses. the way to fix this is stop th
and the national media about details of what happened on september 11. the obama administration is chosen to rely on the fbi to investigate the terrorist attacks in benghazi. which killed 4 americans including our ambassador. fbi investigators however remain in tripoli, they have now been for almost 3 weeks, they have done nothing, seen nothing, and obama administration, refers all questions to the fbi. which knows nothing. one could say, conveniently show, fox news correspondent katherine hairage has been reporting this throughout we turn to katherine for a live report. reporter: thank you lou, within the last hour, i have interviewed head of house intelligence committee, mike rodgers, he told me he believes that obama administration has politicized to fit a story line of a youtube video clip that was the driving force behind the benghazi attack. >> i argue the administration made serious mistakes when they highlighted video and took it on tv to with u.s. taxpayer dollars, they were serious mistakes we're paying the price for, it was because after that view she they thought their intelligence, w
, look. that's why i have elections. compromise. they did not elect me to a compromise with barack obama. we have a few more weeks in this campaign. and we went like that they were going to will have. [indiscernible] >> a lot of folks who run and work for a private charity, nonprofits themselves believe that the government should do more to help the poor rather than less. why do you think that is if they do such a better job than the government does to iraq. >> we are seeing a lot of groups like catholic charities becoming effectively lobby. i don't give them any money. give money to that organization in this bandit lobbying to get the government to do their job. >> second understand the rationale. doing good work. all the government would give us more money. real ticket. >> a lot of people do a good job. unfortunately they become a it -- addictive to welfare. in effect corrupted civil society. one of the deep problems with the welfare state. people he should be dedicated to helping others treacly. >> i admire your good intentions and trying to help. john: i sense of but coming. >> to yo
against somebody who shows up with totally new proposals that says, oh, he loves teachers and last week he said obama wants to hire more teachers and i'm not for that. that suddenly he's for -- he's not for cutting taxes on the top earners in this country, on the wealthy, and, of course, his whole proposal is denying that he has a proposal that would cut taxes by $5 trillion. there's a name to that proposal. he printed it out. the analysis that was done was based on a romney proposal that now he says he doesn't know what obama is talking about. it's utterly amazing, hard to debate somebody who has totally different plans than he really has said in the past. >> does this mean the president has fulfilled his promise to get unemployment below 8% and this isn't a one-term proposition? >> you know, you can't deny the numbers. 7.8% is, in fact, lower than 8%, and that's kind of the benchmark that the republicans have laid out. i'm sure they are extremely disappointed that there are better job numbers in the united states of america because they have been trying to sabotage any efforts, every day
as they have done in the last week. president obama is a great debater. the way i recall it, brooke, in the last presidential campaign, debates were not president obama's strengths. in fact, he's a much better speechmaker than he is a debater. and don't forget, he hasn't debated an awful lot lately. when the president of the united states and you're in the oval office, people tend not to debate with you an awful lot. you live in the presidential bubble. he hasn't been on stage with other people challenging him. so in a way, he sort of has got to get used to this routine over and over again, where as mitt romney has been on a debate stage an awful lot of times. >> if i recall, you were in a lot of those debates, he's tough, he's no wallflower that mitt romney. what is his biggest challenge, though? going into wednesday? >> the biggest challenge, i think mitt romney has got to do a couple of things. they're at odds with each other. first thing goehe's got to do i take on president obama directly when it comes to policy. what he has to tell the voters is i've got a better plan for an e
his opponent. it's a big week for candidates in this country. president barack obama is hoping to build momentum from that lower unemployment rate to hold a fundraiser in los angeles today, then eahe's heading to ohio. mitt romney is rallying in florida. he's giving a major foreign policy speech tomorrow. >>> we're following a shooting on the campus of the university of south alabama. a student
